The Belfry Hotel & Resort review
We recently stayed over at the famous The Belfry Hotel & Resort as we were going to our friends’ wedding at the nearby Shustoke Barn. As all my family are super into golf, I was really excited to stay at the world famous golf resort.
We stayed in the signature double room which was classic contemporary in style and decorated with neutral tones and bold accents. The bed was really comfy with crisp bed lined, voluminous pillows and fluffy towels. Our room had an en-suite with a lovely walk-in hot waterfall shower.
The spa and facilities
I spent Friday afternoon relaxing in the spa. I did a few lengths in the pool followed by ten minutes in the steam room and the sauna. The spa was a lovely extra to the hotel, but it wasn’t as nice as a day spa and there were quite a few kids in the pool which made it a bit tricky when doing lengths. There is also a fire and ice section of the spa, but I think it might be extra to go in here.
I was a little disappointed on arrival to find out that the rate didn’t include breakfast, as the room rate was already quite expensive and I just expected it to be included, like it usually is at higher end hotels. However, it was definitely worth adding it on (it was £12.50 per person, per day) as the breakfast was really good. It was an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet with hot full-English options like bacon, sausage, eggs and beans, and continental options like cheeses and meats as well as cereal, yogurts and fruits. I definitely made the most of it!
On the Friday night we spent time with the bride and groom and their family and friends and we had a meal in The Ryder Grill. The meal was also buffet style with delicious salads and cold meats plus soup for starters followed by a mixture of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes for mains. Again, I did visit the buffet table quite a few times.
I wore this beige bodycon dress from Femme Luxe for dinner and accessorised with my Louboutins, since we didn’t have far to walk. I have had so many compliments on this dress – I wasn’t too sure about it at first but I really love it now.
On the Sunday following the wedding, we woke up and, after breakfast, we had a little stroll around the grounds of The Belfry. I wore this crochet mini dress from Femme Luxe but I wore it as a top with some black jeans from ASOS as it was a little short on me to wear as a dress. It’s great for a casual day out, or can be dresses up with jewellery and a pair of heels for night time.
We had an amazing weekend at The Belfry with our friends. If you’d like to stay at The Belfry, you can book your own stay here.

I wore this dress for cocktails with friends a couple of weeks before our stay at The Belfry. It’s another one of Femme Luxe’s bodycon dresses but I teamed it with a white polo neck, as it was a bit cold to wear it as it was.
